INTROSPECT is a 3-year project funded by French ANR and "Fonds de Recherche Société et Culture" (FRQSC) from Quebec region, Canada. This international collaboration involves researchers in computer science and archeology from France and Canada : Hybrid (Inria-IRISA), CReAAH, Inrap, company Image ET, University Laval and INRS-ETE. INTROSPECT aims to develop new uses and tools for archaeologists that facilitate access to knowledge through interactive numerical introspection methods that combine computed tomography with 3D visualization technologies, such as Virtual Reality, tangible interactions and 3D printing. The scientific core of the project is the systematization of the relationship between the artefact, the archaeological context, the digital object and the virtual reconstruction of the archaeological context that represents it and its tangible double resulting from the 3D printing. This axiomatization of its innovative methods makes it possible to enhance our research on our heritage and to make use of accessible digital means of dissemination. This approach changes from traditional methods and applies to specific archaeological problems. Several case studies will be studied in various archaeological contexts on both sides of the Atlantic. Quebec museums are also partners in the project to spread the results among the general public.
